Serious tree overgrowth.

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 12:11, Thursday 13 August 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2243529.

I’ve lived in my property for around 6 years now and in that time the trees have for out of control. I thought the council had been and chopped some branches away as when I come home from work one day I noticed there were two men out the back chopping some branches down. I asked and they said they wasn’t from the council but wouldn’t tell me where they were from. I asked them to stop as I said I the trees need professional attention them they left. This issue is still seriously bad and it will now affect my house insurance due in December due to the height of the trees. The problem is the trees at the side of the a45 backing onto the houses at old quarry court, the trees behind 16,17,18 and 19 old quarry court seen the worst to me and they sway ever so much in the wind. And in fact it was only a couple of years ago that one fell on a house at number 15. I dread this happening to anyone else. Plus in the last couple of weeks two huge branches fell into my garden unfortunately I was away with work so didn’t get pictures of this. Could this please be sorted as it’s now a possible danger to life and extreme property damage. I did inform the borough council and they informed me (after 4 months of contacting them) that the property belongs to the county council so I went through the county councils website and it inked me to here.
